Worst Countries In Europe

The Top Ten
1 Albania Albania is a southeastern European country that is slightly larger than Maryland and near Montenegro, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, and Greece. The capital is a city called Tirana. Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. Many different languages are spoken but the official language is Albanian. They also speak Italian, Greek, French, German, and English. The population is currently 2,897,400 people (254 per square mile). Most Albanian people are Muslim but some are Christian. Albania is mostly farmland and is known to have beautiful beaches.

A country that hates everyone around them and more. They want to have everything around them but when you get in their country you feel that you are in the early 1900. Still have blood vengeance, organ crimes, trafficking drugs and a lot more come from there. Presenting themselves as victim while are the biggest oppressors. Dreaming of Great Albania AND still planing to take parts of Macedonia, Serbia (already did), Greece and Montenegro.

And the mentality of the people is medieval

As I can see most of you are Serbians and its no brainer to know that Albania is worst one, but lets be realistic, there are quite a few countries in Europe worst than Albania, yes some Albanians are rude and dirty but I have seen worst, by the way in Albania there is Christians-catholic and orthodox so don't just put them all in same frame. Why don't you all point out that neighbours such as Greece and Serbia have never taken to Albania, never in centuries but always used this land for their own greed, you its very easy just to say all these negative stuff. Now if you dislike Albania and Albanians that much I suggest all of you never go there again so your souls will not be filled with so much hatered.

These people are strained in EU lord knows how, they multiply like farm animals very filthy they tried to scam me twice and they also stole my toys when I was there as child on seaside, they pretended they did not do it while playing with my toys in front of me and their mother did nothing. 25% of their population evacuated country never looking back and still fleeing spreading their crappy culture and degenerate behavior every place they go be careful.

So dirty and uncivilized. But also, were ever I went in EU there seems to be lot of problems with Albanian mafia. I can't believe that EU let them have Kosovo (it will be joined with Albania eventually). I was in Macedonia last month before I went back to Finland, and Albanians were making so much trouble there. I was surprised not to see anything on T.V. when I got back home. World is blind to see what is this country doing to everybody.

2 Russia Russia, or the Russian Federation (RF), is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world by area, covering over 17,125,191 square kilometres (6,612,073 sq mi), and encompassing one-eighth of Earth's inhabitable landmass. Russia extends across eleven time zones and borders sixteen sovereign nations, the most of any country in the world. It is the ninth-most populous country and the most populous country in Europe, with a population of 145.5 million. The country's capital and largest city is Moscow, the largest city entirely within Europe. Saint Petersburg is Russia's cultural centre and second-largest city. Other major urban areas ...read more.

Russia is big, beautiful, has a lot of sad history. The only major cities are St. Petersburg and Moscow, the rest of the country is pretty sad and poor. The government is very corrupt and dangerous, and Russians are super conservative usually

Russians are weak minded and arrogant. They are easily brainwashed. Case in point: The world view of Russia is in the toilet because of their land grabbing ambitions and nuclear posturing. Except Putin's approval rating is at record levels. Everyone in the world hates Russia right now. The Russian people don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.

Not even the USSR conducted nuclear posturing like Putin. In fact, they did not even come close in comparison. Putin seems to not wish to address the one source economy issues that is plaguing Russia. Instead, he would rather see to it to bring down his neighbors to his level such as Georgia and Ukraine.

Finally... How long will Putin be in power? Seems to me, he is the definition of Despot Dictator.

By far the most horrid people in in In London... Rude, arrogant, brainwashed and jealous. In holiday destinations, the worst kind of tourist: thugs with lap dancer tarty girlfriends. Hostile and miserable in their own land. Utterly blinded by their own propaganda: do you see Germans still defending Hitler? No. But Russians defend Stalin even though millions of their families died in gulags. They twist everything in history because they are fed utter biased rubbish keeping them ignorant. Corruption in business, sports management, foreign property ownership, people trafficking. Never been to a country where absolutely no-one smiles except the drunks. Made enemies of all their neighbours. Nasty thugs and heartless cold Orwellian minions.

Reasons to hate/loathe Russia

1) Basically an Orwellian dictatorship.
2) Putin is totally insane and wants to take over other countries in Europe, if not the world.
3) The Mafia controls the cities.
4) Mass starvation, worse than some African countries.
5) Russians hate every country but themselves.
6) 75% of Russians would still vote for Stalin if he was around today (0% of Germans would vote for Hitler)
7) Regularly commits crimes against humanity.
8) Supports Iran, North Korea and Syria, among other dictatorships.
9) Trying to start a real life access of evil against the US with China.
10) Occupied and enslaved half of Europe for 45 years and don't regret anything.
11) Layed the foundations for the war on terror by invading Afghanistan.
12) Food is indigestible.
13) Drunks everywhere.
14) 90% of the country is tundra/
15) They want to commit genocide against gay people.

Reasons to like Russia


3 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino, and Vatican City. The... read more

I am Italian. Unfortunately I must admit that most of what has been written here is true, at least from my personal experience. I had to literally flee the country and start a new life abroad, and I mean not to succeed in my life, but barely to survive decently. And that's not the worst. What tourists and visitors see from outside, for how nasty, is just a fraction of what you must see from inside, specially if you had the ill fate to be born there. What goes on within families, schools and various institutions is actually much worse. A cage of madmen, really. I know other people of very different ages who experienced exactly the same. Most of them had to leave for good to find a job, and as soon as they settled abroad, they started to recover a sense of dignity, mental balance, and faith in life. Sad story, really...

I was in Milan for a week because of work. Amazingly (for just a week), I fully recognize all the negative comments posted. Arrogance, disdain to foreigners, poor education, incompetence are traits of the Italian people I met. The infrastructure is poorly taken care of.

Apparently Milan is at the top of Italian cities for doing business. If this is the case, this is a country that is definitely not appropriate for hosting international events.

I will certainly avoid any type of business that could be bring me back to Italy. It goes without saying that I will also avoid spending my vacation there.

4 Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a landlocked country in Southeastern and Central Europe, situated at the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain and the Balkans. It shares land borders with Hungary to the north, Romania to the northeast, Bulgaria to the southeast, North Macedonia to the south, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the west, and Montenegro to the southwest, and claiming a border... read more

It's a poor country. Has a bad reputation, the people are not the most attractive, they can be quite rude and direct. Croatia is more beautiful. Has a reputation for crime, ugly scenery, and drunkness.

Of all countries in Europe, definitely the worst. They're the most angry, primitive, war loving, chaos loving and lying people I have ever met. Their cities are rubbish, built in the span of last 60 years out of commie blocks, with Belgrade being the most dull, gray and disgusting city I have ever saw and been into. They speak only about hatred, war and how all the World is against them - but there is a clear reason, amongst all the other wars they started, they're directly guilty for the first World war which was actually the main cause of the second World war. Their uncontrollable need of controlling everyone and everything but not having any talent or education for it, caused the wars in former Yugoslavia also. With atrocities and unseen criminal activities they even today glorify the war criminals. Many well educated and smart people from Serbia left the country forever, leaving the primitives.

5 Ukraine Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is the second-largest European country, covering approximately 600,000 square kilometres (230,000 sq mi), and has a population of around 40 million people. It is bordered by Russia to the east and northeast; by Belarus to the north; by Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary to the west; and by Romania and Moldova to the southwest; with a coastline along the Black... read more

It's like if Poland and Russia had a poor, corrupt baby. It's kind of dull, food is dull, and its plagued by war. The women are usually better looking then the men

The only reason Ukraine is bad right now is because of the war. Why Russia why! The soldiers just attacked Ukraine and everyone had to evacuate.

I lived in that absolute toilet of a country for roughly 4 years with my Ukrainian wife.
I regret both marrying her and living there to be sure, even if at that particular point in time it was rather convenient for me to live there.
Ukraine is a country that seems to have become so Socialized (via Socialism) or so Communized (via Communism) that no one there seems to be willing to accept any sort of responsibility for any of their actions. Therefore Ukrainian standards are indeed very low. Ukrainians tend to have an "I didn't do it," mind set, which can be very aggravating especially when it is obvious, to any honest observer of the situation, (based upon empirical data) that they are lying about whatever. By the bye, Ukrainians are pluperfect liars. No one anywhere else in the world lies as well as do Ukrainians. The people there have had to live, for such a long a period of time, with such low expectations that they seem not to try to do their best at anything. Logic and common sense seem to have also largely escaped the minds of many/most Ukrainians.
It is indeed a very depressing country.

6 Kosovo Kosovo, officially the Republic of Kosovo, is a partially recognised state in Southeastern Europe. It lies at the centre of the Balkans, occupying an area of 10,887 km2 (4,203 sq mi), with a population of 1.8 million; and is bordered by the uncontested territory of Serbia to the north and east, North... read more

Kosovo shouldn't even exist. Albanians invaded the region so they could break it off of Serbia and increase Albanian control. The only reason why they want it to be its own country is because they don't want to start another Balkan war. That's bull. Kosovo is Serbian land, and the Albanians living there should be deported back to Albania. Albania's population is low anyway, so it wouldn't make much of a difference.

This territory should not be under Albanian/NATO rule. Crime rate is high, the Serbs are being treated terribly, etc.

This land would be MUCH better off back under full Serb rule.

At least Kosovo actually means something special to the Serbs.

7 Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina, abbreviated BiH or B&H, sometimes called Bosnia–Herzegovina and often known informally as Bosnia, is a country at the crossroads of south and southeast Europe, located in the Balkans. The capital and largest city is Sarajevo. Bosnia and Herzegovina borders Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Croatia to the north and southwest. In the south it has a 24 kilometres (15 miles) long coast, exiting on the Adriatic Sea within the Mediterranean, around the town of Neum. Bosnia, which is the inland region of the country, has a moderate continental climate with hot summers and cold, snowy winters. In the central and eastern regions of the country, the geography ...read more.

Has a lot of war and ethnic tension. It's pretty poor and backwards. There was a video of a Bosnian women throwing puppies in a river...yikes..heartless place

Shallow people that belong to medieval Europe. They hate each other and every other nation in the world. They are polite only when they think that you have money. They believe in superstition and witchcraft. It's a paradise for corrupted politicians because people doesn't have critical thinking and they vote for thieves every election. Their patriotism is fake, if they had a chance they would rob their own national treasure. It's an artificial country that cannot sustain itself. It is more a school project than a real country. People are lazy, they only want to drink coffee all day and they are proud of it.

This is THE worst country in the world and it should be on number 1. People suck, people are stupid and retarded there, they hate everything in the world and the only people to not be friends with. This country sucks and you need to be a drug adict, killer, to act like tough guy, to do crimes and to bully everyone and to beat up children, kids and other people to have friends and girlfriend. There aren't even medicines to buy here, everything is filthy, everyone is filthy here, rats walk everywhere, full of garbage, public transportation is THE worst here, when you enter in a bus or tram it smells like someone peed on in it, vehicles are full of names written on the walls and on the roof, people spit infront of you when you walk along the street, everyone yells here speeks loudly, bullies everyone, people and parents abuse children a lot. People in this " country " trust bad people and bad children more than the good children. Nobody respects kids and joung people. They are ...more

I am from Bosnia and it sucks! Politicians are liars and thieves! Salaries are small,public transportation is so horrible! Most of people are homophobic and crazy nationalists. If you are gay or an atheist you will be judged every day (and most people didn't read Bible or Koran -.-"). Most of people are just stupid and primitive. Not all people,there are really smart and kind people of course.
Bosnia is a beautiful country filled with many stupid people! Simple as beans!

8 Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. It is the smallest nation on Earth, and is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church.

Why is this allowed to exist, let alone be recognized by the United Nations. After all, even if you get past this "country's" theocratic nature, undemocratic tendencies, widespread corruption, illegal control over Italian politics, brutal security force, rampant homophobia and complete isolation from reality, it is TINY. It would fit comfortably into central park and still leave plenty of room for the merry go round and the zoo.

Vatican: No children being born there, no old people dying there, no schools/kindergardens (hopefully), no families, citizenship is always temporary, no faith-independant citizenship, no own currency, no police (only security guards, they actually turn over caught criminals to Italian police), no military, no real economy other than museums BUT recognized by the UN. Taiwan: Has all of the above except being recognized by the UN, what a weird world... If that's a country then I feel ashamed for being a human

Home of the anti-christ cult the catholic church. It's so sick how after so many sex abuse scandals and the amount of tax they take from italian citizens, italians still believe this filthy misreable graveyard organisation represents Jesus and Mary!

Pathetic excuse for power. Funny how the pope is one of the richest people in the entire world but, we never see him giving too the poor or needy. It's easy to preach from a golden throne.

9 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately 38.5 million people, Poland is the sixth most populous member state of the European Union... read more

I'm a Pole and I must say that this country is full of jerks, tight assed bastards and whining idiots who pretend they know everything about any topic they discuss. There is no happiness here, people are grumpy and hateful towards pretty much anyone, especially other Poles. They may smile occasionally, but deep in their hearts they wish you get cancer or something. Politics are full of jack too, every politician here is an unprofessional thief whose goal is to abuse their laws, exploit the system and rip people off as much as possible. There is a joke going around that the Poland's worst enemy is Poland itself. That's the truth. Also, if you even remotely mention any of our flaws Poles will go butt hurt, call you a national traitor. They say they are tolerant, but in fact they cannot even tolerate themselves, let alone anyone else outside of their narrow, conservative spectrum of thinking. Damned hopeless nation that cannot even maintain itself without ruining everything that our ancestors have built and brought here. Just annex this crap and let us forget about this nightmare.

Now come on, call me a traitor, leftist, commie, anything that your handicapped mind can handle without exploding... I won't listen to your barking anyway.

10 Belarus Belarus, officially the Republic of Belarus, formerly known by its Russian name Byelorussia or Belorussia, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Its capital and most populous city is Minsk.

It's controlled by Russia. It's corrupt and very cold, bland, and depressing. Its sad, the dictator needs to go away, so Belarus can prosper independently without corruption and a more clear "Belarussian identity" not a Russian corrupt identity

Nothing to do. Nothing to see. Food is bad. The country is controlled by a dictator who locks up or kills his opponents. It's a pain just to get in. The Southern part is covered in radiation from Chernobyl. The people can be racist, homophobic, etc. It's just really dull, but I have met many nice people who are welcoming to outsiders, and I have nothing against them.

The only reason this country is not higher on the list is because no one goes there. The people are truly awful. A small percentage are amazing, but thinking that everyone is like that will get you in big trouble. Safer to trust no one in this country. Safer just to avoid. Go to Scandinavia instead, even if you can't afford it. This country will cost you more in money they steal from you.

The Contenders
11 Bulgaria Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, was established in 681 ad. and since then it never changed it's name, which makes it one of the oldest countries in Europe. Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, found long before founding of Bulgaria, it has a lot of historical places to visit. Major Cities... read more

Bulgaria is indeed a wonderful country in the Balkan pennynsula. And the Balkan is magician too.I don't think Bulgaria is a bad place because it has beautiful nature and unique places. (Black Sea, Sofia)
People are nice, friendly and helpful. Most of them are Slavs and tracian but there are some turks from the Ottoman era. I know Bulgaria suffered and suffering from difficult problems. ( corruption, economy, migrant invasion, the former destructive communism in soviet era)
Slavic brothers and sisters I know you have hard times but I pray for you and wish you better times! GOD bless and save you!

Beautiful country with extremely corrupted MAFIA government which destroys everything in the country - judicial system ( highly corrupted, controlled by the MAFIA government), medical system ( no money for it, corrupted, medical staff under payed and often neglect their responsibility);
journalism ( corrupted, controlled by the MAFIA government), education ( corrupted, inefficient, unmotivated teachers)...
A huge amount of Bulgarians go abroad and never come back...

12 Romania Romania is a sovereign state located in Southeastern Europe It borders the Black Sea, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, and Moldova. It has an area of 238,391 square kilometres and a temperate-continental climate. With over 19 million inhabitants, the country is the seventh-most-populous member state of the European Union. Its capital and largest city, Bucharest, is the sixth-largest city in the EU, with 1,883,425 inhabitants as of 2011. Romania derives from the Latin romanus, meaning "citizen of Rome". The first known use of the appellation was attested in the 16th century by Italian humanists travelling in Transylvania, Moldavia, and Wallachia

I never had any problems living here. Crime rates are low, and in general if you mind your own business nothing can go wrong. People are sometimes nervous expecially where there are traffic jams. But in general it was a good experience. Most people speak english quite well, and they help in case you get lost. It's a developing country but not like BBC or CNN portrait it. You can find anything here, from a high budget to a low one, the food prices are same as in the West but in general in remains a cheap budget country. It's also a great option if you are not a fan of refugees. No one is here.

I grew up in Transylvania (which we call Ardeal and no it does not have any connections with Dracula, it's all in a film director's spoiled fantasy) and the older I get the more I miss it. I arrived in uk a long time ago when it was still civilised (the weather was still dreadful) but nowadays it's getting worse every day. Yes I would go back, uk is incredibly ruined by some abusive immigrants (like the ones who have no respect for the culture. ) besides, There is no culture left in many parts of uk, such a shame, I wonder why this nation s government have decided to hand over their country to anyone willing to trample all over it?!

Am American from the deep South, (Louisiana state) and I think Romania is the coolest nation in all of Europe. I don't know why everyone is hating on Romania. Romanians are some of the nicest people ever. They have very pretty women too. Compared to Poland, I would rather go to Romania. Remember Nadia Comaneci? Very nice, awesome bod. The women are some of the most beautiful. Polish women are overrated and all look the same. Probably the most overlooked and underappreciated nation in Europe. Sure, the economy is poor; but this is Eastern Europe. They've faced economic hardship from their neighbors and oppressors. (collapse or Russia and Yugoslavia, also Hungarian nationalists trying to steal their land.)

People always like to do a Poland vs. Romania competition for best Eastern European country. Poland usually wins; I think these people are insane and Romania is 10x better.

Romania is GREAT, but you need to understand life there. The wages are too low and it causes everyone to struggle immensely. People constantly struggle to pay rent and get food, it is sad and I hope it improves soon. There is a HUGE amount of corruption in the government, where they hire family members and siphon public funds away.

The most dangerous thing about Romania is that a LOT of people there are very very deceitful. Some are compulsive lifelong liars. I am still studying this phenomenon when I visit there (I travel there every year), but in the communist times of the securitate (secret police)... people were told not to trust anyone, anyone could be an informant. It created a culture of distrust and that persists STRONGLY today, the people from that time are still alive and raising children. Romanians screw each other over regularly, people don't seem to keep long term friends (of course they might know a couple good people, but the density of their trusted friend ...more

13 Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

Country full of hateful idiots who hate all their neighbooring countries for stuff that happened 100 years ago.
If a hungarian notices you are either serbian, romanian or slovakian for example he'll instantly start cursing and riddiculing you over the Treaty of Trianon.
These people have medieval mentality, they still want to rule over lands they had centuries ago that have very small numbers of hungarians in the modern day.
Racism and facist is very high there, and the scenery is not beautiful at all.
It's just a random mass of land with some cities built on it and a small lake in the middle.
Also, if you are a football fan and if your country will have a match there, I recommend not going.
Hungarian fans are known in the football world as a bunch of violent, retarded brutes that vandalize random property wherever they go and attack rival groups of fans with flares and firecrackeres.
Overall not a good country to go to.

14 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, is a country in Southeast Europe. It is situated on the southern tip of the Balkans, and is located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Greece shares land borders with Albania to the northwest, North Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north, and Turkey to the northeast. The Aegean Sea lies to the east of the mainland, the Ionian Sea to the west, and the Sea of Crete and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. Greece has the longest coastline on the Mediterranean Basin, featuring thousands of islands. The country consists of nine traditional geographic regions, and has a population of approximately 10.7 million. Athens is the nation's capital and largest ...read more.

I have to agree with the people who commented about ancient Greece. Ancient Greece was great, democracy civilization, science, philosophy, we owe a lot to Greece. On the other hand though Greece nowadays is going downhill. If you have visited Greece you'll probably disagree and say ; Greece is great, people are really kind, the food awesome, the weather is awesome and the beaches are beautiful. And I'll agree with you, Greece is great but only for holidays. Try actually living there for 6 months and you'll understand. The people are not as kind as you think, in reality they are rude, racist and lazy. Food is great but that is if you have money to eat, as the economy of the country is destroyed. But the main reason I believe Greece is an awful country to live at is that in this country you can't have dreams. Whatever dream you have is going to crumble on the floor as this country can not support it. That's why anyone who has dreams, wants a future, wants to be someone gets out here, ...more

Definitely the worst country in Europe, potentially on the planet, a drain on the EU where the people feel they are all 'victims'. Government doesn't know how to run a country, people retiring on full pensions at age 25 (well maybe 55). Men think they are something special, even though they are in their 30's working as waiters and women are just lazy and rude. Food is like slop but they greedily gorge constantly which is why they have one of the fattest populations in the world.

People almost have a sense of entitlement here and loathe tourists even though tourism is probably the only thing that funds and props the country up. The economy was clearly going to collapse but no one seemed to care until it did, when they came begging Europe with the hands out.

Should have kicked them out the EU and left them to rot and their pool of hummus and poorly planned pensions schemes.

Not sure why Eastern European countries are on here they are great, only left communism in ...more

Greece will always be the center of the best strategic point in Europe!
This is why Turkey is in Cyprus!
How do you bring a country to control?
You hit them in their financial pocket!
But guess what; Greece is one of the hardest country to control. (A Us president said that. )
After 600 years of slavery from the turks ottoman empire, Greece will never put its head down to anyone!
Is Greece a racist?
Well, no but prejudice: meaning all you Albanians and all other foreighners came to Greece for shelter, because your countries are poor and don't know what it means to enjoy life, and work like a human being not a slave. So get out of Greece which you have destroyed the economy and go back to your rich country. No one invited all you poor son of bitc&s! All you did was bring poverty and crime!
Greece will survive as it always has and Macedonia, Alexander the Great is Greek and will always be GREEK!
Molon lave!

Greece is the worst country in Europe. Their economy gets worse each day the banks can't pay off their debts and the European Union gave them an offer but Greece wouldn't cooperate and then they wonder why they went broke. They're also very arrogant that is why they always blame the most powerful countries in Europe (in this case Germany) instead of thinking what they did wrong. Their history is amazing and their beaches but that doesn't change the fact that they can't take the following consequences of their actions.

15 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

England can trace its history as far back as the 10th century, but modern England didn't start till the Norman Invasion of 1066. In 1535, England annexed Wales and in 1603 shared a Monarch with Scotland, which eventually led to the Unification of the two into 'Great Britain', in 1801 Ireland was incorporated forming the 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland', in 1922, 6 counties stayed in the UK while the rest of Ireland declared Independence. ...read more.

Lived here all my life and will probably die here now: regret family not emigrating almost 40 years ago.

A government that Hitler failed to save the world from. They rob the poor to give to the rich, constantly and mercilessly.

Vastly more expensive than almost anywhere in the world, with prices going up about 30% a year not the 1 - 2% the lying government say.

A royal family who are German imposters, that led the nation against Germany TWICE!

Corruption. Makes a mafia state look honest. Some mega-rich tycoons pay less tax than a schoolkid on his first paper-round, but that kid will be the one the evil money-grasping government jump on.


Iniquity. The rich are insanely rich, the vast majority, if they are lucky have a job just above the poverty-line.

A police state, with thousands of cameras following every move you make. Cops jump on you in seconds if you step on a crack in the pavement. But if you were murdered they won't show ...more

Replying to an earlier comment:
People ask you "are you alright" because its something called being nice which is obviously something you have never done in your life. Your boss is just one person, one person with an insignificant amount of power within the country shouldn't make this country the worst country in Europe. Weather isn't the people's fault so don't try and place the blame onto English people for that because that is pathetic. People smile when they are happy and are being nice as I stated earlier. I can understand why they said you were rude and also maybe a smile will brighten up someone's day. Just think about that. They could be in a dark place and you may have yanked them back into the light. When you bring them rubbish on a plate and say its delicious, people are being polite - its an English trait. It is also a low crime rate here. There are other countries with a significantly higher crime rate.

I grew up in England and now live in Scotland. It's amazing how much friendlier and more fun they are up here. English people are insane, they sit in a miserable, ugly, grey and rainy country with a hideous media machine that can only be described as state sponsored propaganda, and seem to think it's the best country in the world? They truly have no idea why Europe hates them, or even why Scotland hates them too! The arrogance is astounding. I'm English and it's the truth. I've spent time in about 20 other European countries so far and I can't think of a worse one than England. Horrible place!

Bad government, high obesity, bad weather and general misery. England makes the rest of Europe look so much nicer, classier and more cultured. The typical british "lifestyle" revolves around coming home from working a 70 hour week, staying in the house/flat all day because its too cold/wet outside, watching T.V. and eating junk food. Smile at someone on the street? You'll probably be greeted with a punch. Full of chavvy, arrogant meat-head guys and dumb, blond, fake tanned, overweight girls who wish they were Paris Hilton. On top of that, England is always cold, even in the summer. Education standards are declining, university fees have gone up, cost of living is increasing, unemployment is through the roof and the brain drain is rampant as educated brits leave the country in droves. anyone who has been anywhere in England outside of London will understand! I left that godforsaken country and hope never to go back!

At least this country is far more developed, advanced, prosperous, progressive, educated, safer, cleaner, etc. than even the richest African country. Only inbred brainless scumbags think an African country can possibly be richer than a European country. That poor excuse of a continent is nothing compared to a highly developed continent like Europe. Even India is much more developed than the majority of Africa

People from Moldova are goodhearted, hardworking, peaceful and very patient... The problem with such a bad rating is: the circumstances that Moldova is dealing with... The high corruption and poverty in Moldova Is the consequence of being a part of Soviet Union... As we know most ex soviet countries have the same problems... One thing I know is the good attitude of most Moldavians, in the future Moldova will become a better place... I hope the Euro integration will help break through the iron curtain that paralyzed development in all aspects of life in Moldova... May God of Israel be With You Moldova!

17 Azerbaijan Azerbaijan, officially the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a country in the Transcaucasian region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe. It is a part of the Caucasus region, and is bounded by the Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia and Turkey to the west, and Iran to the south. Baku is the capital and largest city.

For all of you saying Azerbaijan is not European, it kind of is due to some sort of European border which I have no idea about (Otherwise Russia is basically not European either, as only the western part is... So if Azerbaijan is 'classed' as European, then so goes for Israel, Armenia, Georgia and Turkey. Ok I'll stop babbling...)

This country is a very horrible country, in certain places. Building walls to prevent competing nations in the 1st European Games from seeing all the awful poverty near Baku (So I herd) With a beautiful structure known as to The Flame Towers looks so great! Thank god it's a distraction from the semi-crap poor housing. Some are beautiful, but let's face it, the majority look like the cheap and god awful council houses in the UK. Not only is the population noted for selfish excuses for humans, but seriously lack kindness and compassion. 'Murderer' DNA engraved into there stupid heads (So I've herd). A country with such a crap government and a ...more

Hey you. You need to read little bit about history. Write on the internet khojaly war and then click on images. Yo''ll see blood and dead peoples. Do you know how many peoples died in that war. About one million or more. And its because of Russia and Armenia. Abot environment Azerbaian started to developing newly. Azerbaijan is in EuroAsia. Azerbaijan held European Games. Which means Europe agreed that Azerbaijan is Eastern European country. No one has rule to tell bad words about othr countries. Plus about walls Azerbijan did their best to held European games. But government didn't know about the materials of walls. Every country has their own problems. And Azerbaijan is from the safest countries in the Europe and Asia. I believe you've never been in Azerbaijan. Because I am 11 years old and I know English perfect. My country opens many schools and makes peoples live comfortable life. So you are no one to talk aboutthe counry that you've never been in. Don't be racist.

Azerbaijan is a nice country however in my opinion they belong to Iran as they were stolen from Iran by Russia and never returned. Great people and scenery however there government are just spies put between Russia and Iran. Not to mention there culture is essentially a copy of Iran's with Russian influences.

The worst country of the Europe and of the world. There isn't freedom, and they just wish a war with Armenia. They want to ruin Armenian Nagorno Karabakh again! I truly hate this country!

18 Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan and Iran to the east; and Iraq and Syria to the south.

When I visited Turkey in June/July 2012, I found it to be a decent country. I found Istanbul one of the greatest cities that I've been to, and it is very cultured. I admired the dazzling Muslim architecture, Turkish pop is amazing, with Tarkan's music being a fusion of pop and R&B, and the landscapes were beautiful. The caves of Cappadocia were a good enough tourist trap, but I adored the Mediterranean and Black Sea coasts. However, I had some problems in this country. When I walked the streets of Istanbul, most people gave me dirty looks because I was part American. Most people were nice enough, but those people... God. It's tough to be an American or British tourist in this city! Anyway, alright country, I just wished there could have been more.

Womanizers, fanatics, uneducated, short and uncultured. The Ottomans did nothing but butcher half the balkans and send Greece and its neighbors to poverty and despair. They killed 1.5 million Armenians and are in denial of it. Today they support ISIS and have 20 million Kurds reside in their country and live like 2nd class citizens. They deny their use of language and right to form their own country despite having lived there much longer than them. They violate Greek national waters and airspace and have threaten Greece to war for their right to extend their nautical miles from 6 to 12. Everything beautiful in Turkey from Agia Sophia to Izmir and all the historic buildings belonged to the Greeks which today they advertise as their own. Come to think of it what amenities did the Turks built? Erdogan is a wolf who wants to send Turkey back 50 years

19 Slovakia

Racist, horrible backwards hole. People there are very ignorant and act like they are inbred. I'm Slovakian lady living abroad and I'm married to a wonderful black man for over fifteen years. Living abroad made me realize even further what a nasty place Slovakia is and I'm glad that I have the opportunity to live in the country where people from all over the world get along. Majority of people in Slovakia are trailer trash but they still feel superior to black, Asian, mixed people etc.
There are so many beautiful places in the world, why visit Slovakia? Only decent thing there is nature but you can get that in lots of places. Food is ok as well. Some of it.
Visit if you want but you might regret it.

Of cource we hate Hungarians, because as Slovakia was a part of the Austro-Hungarian empire we couldn't even share the idea of creating Slovakia, many people were jailed for sharing this idea. If a kid said something in Slovak at school, the teacher beat him, and at least at WW2 they attacked us and took half of our country.

And then we have Roma people. I don't say that every Roma is bad, I know many good Roma, but many of them are lazy people who don't go to school or work and mostly when I watch news there is this sentence: A retiree was beaten by teenagers almost every time the teenagers are Roma.

Pretty nature, but I have to say, they have a lot of hate going on in this country. Much like Romania, they don't like Roma, or Hungarians. Not even they know why they don't like Hungarians. You will be fined for speaking Hungarian or gypsy language, but English is fine. How screwed up is this? The riot police love to attack minority groups. It is screwed up, and there are no equal rights between Slovaks and minority groups. It's got to be the most chauvinistic country, alongside Romania. Terrible discrimination. TERRIBLE.

About the grandad, do you realize that this country is younger just because of the Czechoslovakian "split? "Except that, it is way older and it is known for the fact that people have lived there already thousands of years ago. And also, slovaks have many reasons to discriminate the gypsies and hungarians-and if you don't agree- check the history for hungarians, and presence for gypsies. Trust me, you will find more reasons that you can even count. Sorry for my bad English-I'm not an English speaker!

20 Macedonia North Macedonia is a landlocked southeastern European country. It borders Greece to the south, Albania to the west, Bulgaria to the east, and Serbia and Kosovo to the north. It has a population of over 2 million people which are a mixture of Macedonians, Albanians, and Serbians. Macedonian is the official language of the country. North Macedonia has many beautiful forests, lakes, and old structures... read more

Worst country ever in Europe, they steal history and claim to be better than bulgaria and greece, which are way better than Macedonia.

Wow look what we got over here! We got a hater! Let me tell you something gyro boy, that's the name that you want us to go by because you think you own us and that we're Greeks...ha! You wish we were. May I remind you that all of Europe has to put in all the money that they've earned over the years to help you people from bankruptcy, and where Macedonia has never had that problem? And they're not even in the EU! So think before you say cause when you run your mouth, that just shows you're ignorant.

Populated mostly by Bulgarian monkeys that think they're the descendants of Alexander the Great, even though their ancestors didn't arrive in the area for 700 years after his death. The rest of them are Albanian gangsters, gypsy thieves and a few Turks. Obsessed with pseudo-historical and pseudo-scientific ideas and in complete denial about their true origins. And it's called FYROM, or the Skopje Republic, by the way.

21 Montenegro

Beautiful country. Uneducated people. Bigots and nationalists. Violent population. Orthodox Christians majority rules the country.

Best country in the world, better then it's neighbors, except maybe Croatia. Very friendly people!

Have never been in such an amazing and underrated country, I will visit it again soon!

Fantastic small country, so beautiful! Where Mountains and Sea meet each other!

22 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806.

Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone... read more

One of the worst ideas in modern human history is undoubtedly the German nation. The German nation has done nothing but plunge Europe into one war after another, each one worse than the previous. It all started from the very beginning with Bismarck, the first and last German leader with a sense of geopolitical insight, who through his scheming managed to get the idiot French emperor to declare a war, which Germany swiftly won. But starting the French German war was hardly Bismarck's greatest mistake, That was the creation of the German nation. But even so, let's not blame Bismarck, like Hitler's mom, he did not realize what he had created.

Some people argue that World War I was the result of a chain of unexpected events, where one could not really blame this or that nation. They're wrong. World War I was started by Wilhelm II, a tantrum throwing child in a mans body who though it was a grand idea to have a war costing the lives of tens of millions because he would have liked Germany to have some more colonies.

The whole endeavor fails but Germany pays little. Let's be nice to Germany, the other European nations said. Let's give them another chance, surely they will see the fault of their ways? Wrong, there's Hitler. He and his posse have developed some retarded ideology and the German people is retarded enough to fall for it. To think this population ever produced the likes of Kant, Marx and Beethoven. Anyhow, they try to conquer the world, again, 40 million people die, again, and they lose, again.

Has Germany finally learned its lessons? Maybe. But why take the risk? Why allow Germany to exist, risking another tragedy, possibly even worse than the previous. To all Germans; do the right thing; divide Germany between your neighbors; end it before it's too late.

23 Lithuania Lithuania, officially the Republic of Lithuania, is a country in Northern Europe.It is one of the Baltic states and lies on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea to the southeast of Sweden and the east of Denmark, with Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia to the southwest. Lithuania covers an area of 65,300 km2 (25,200 sq mi), with a population of 2.8 million. Its capital and largest city is Vilnius; other major cities are Kaunas and Klaipėda. Lithuanians belong to the ethno-linguistic group of the Balts and speak Lithuanian, one of only a few living Baltic languages. ...read more.

Self-absorbed, toxic, xenophobic, corrupt, evil, these are the words I would describe Lithuania with... This country like probably many other Eastern European countries may appear nicer on the surface, than it actually is... I was born in this country and I deeply regret it, growing up was constant torture of bulling and despair, never had any friends and still don't. People here are absolute drones to the point they could be called hive mind, anything or anyone who dares to stray from convention is mocked and there will be attempts made to put down the unconventional. Politics are the same no matter what political party you will chose. in general most policies focused on bossiness interests and little on people, there are no draconian policies, and non are needed it seems since people are like I said "drones" they will just mindlessly rant about politicians and don't do anything about it... For anyone who wants to see developing anarcho-capitalism dystopia Lithuania is the place to ...more

Lithuania has a VERY rich history, oldest language in Europe and one of the oldest in the world. that's right! You're reading Lithuanian language this very moment. Was the biggest country in Europe, and hate slavs. no, Lithuanians are not slavs - they're Baltic. Not Eastern - Northern or Central. Why central? Lithuania is the geographical center of Europe. Why Northern? Most of Lithuania is in the Northern side.It's economy is rising really fast and it has LOTS of great views and places. I love this country and hope that one day it will reach up with other countries! Oh and why is it poor? Well Lithuania regained their independence in 1992 (first country to do so from USSR) Then the whole soviet union collapsed. So its about 40-50 years late on economy. Thanks for your time reading!

Jealous and almost always angry people. Beautiful place to die if you have a nice pension. If you are a young person without rich parents, should avoid this place, unless you are traveling through it. It's has nice sights, rich history but not a good place to live with thoughts for future..

I hate when people think thath bacause we have the highest suicide rate means we are the worst. We lithuanian just are very sensitive people. If you noticed people staring if you are a diffrente race, mostly stare out of curiosity, our goverment might be bad but thath doesn't mean all of us are bad. If you live in a city or a small village you can see all the beautifull things about lithuania and not look at all the bad things. Be possitive and look to the bright side.

24 Kazakhstan

Kazakhs are Asian tribe with a Turkic, the most unpleasant to one's ear, language. They are 0% European and 100% (Central) Asian. The 1% of Kazakhstan that geographically is in "Europe" does not count as Europe at all. There is Kalmykia Republic 100% in "Europe" (Russian Federation), who are Mongols. Not everything that's in Europe is Europe. For example, Tatarstan, is not European, it is Turkic, such as Turkey. So is Bashkortostan and Azerbaijan = Turkic, non-European, (partially) located in Europe. Kazakhstan seems to have tinsel-town culture more than anything else.

A little bit of the areas of Kazakhstan if in Europe.

A little bit of the areas in Kazakhstan is in Europe.

A little bit of Kazakhstan is actually in Europe.

25 Malta Malta, officially known as the Republic of Malta, is a Southern European island country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea.

This filthy island called malta should be listed ''first'' as the worst country and worst society in the world! maltese people are disgustingly arrogant, closed minded, rude, racist, xenophobic, boring, annoying stalkers and the list goes on! I cannot even begin to describe how horrible it feels to live here on this tiny mold of a rock filled with these ratchet maltese turds! and its feels like a terrible far cry compared to other countries, because lets face it, maltese society is a disgrace to the whole world and I really wish one fine day maltese people become completely extinct! the world would look and be such a better place!

Studying abroad here... Worst decision ever made! People here are so rude and DUMB! I swear the university is for retards! Nothing is organized and everyone is lazy as HELL. Dirty disgusting place low sanitation. Nothing here is worth seeing and I am sad I learned this the hard way. Most pointless 5 months of my entire life. I would rather eat 10 plates of dog crap than spend another day on this medieval backwards joke of an island.

Malta has among the friendliest people I know, Maltese people have always been kind and friendly to me, the free school and health care is very good because image you are 18 and you have a big loan to cover because you need to learn in University. Doesn't happen here. Also, good thing is that nowhere in Malta is very far. Every village has its own feast and the feasts are amazing

Boring and nothing to do here.
Only things you can do is work or party (which as hell I sure don't).
The living expenses are cheap and the tax rate is one of the cheapest in the world, sadly the primitive mindset of the Maltese and the lack of activities the country presents make it one of the most, if not the most boring country in the world.
